I sincerely hope you can help me. My Lyndhurst conveyancer is assuring me that she is duty bound toorder Lyndhurst conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydsconveyancing panel. Do I not have a choice here?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Lyndhurst conveyancing searches.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Lyndhurst? Is this really necessary?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the ID of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing business. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign should confirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. Should you are unwilling to provide identification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you.

I have justfound out that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Lyndhurst for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Lyndhurst conveyancing specialists.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Lyndhurst I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Lyndhurst suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I'm remortgaging my primary house to a BTL mortgage with Barclays Direct and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a down payment on a second house. The neighborhood we are talking about is Lyndhurst. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and tie in the transactions?

Make use of our search tool on this site to ensure that the lawyers are on the relevant lender panels. Having checked that they are your conveyancer should be able to connect the two deals but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and specify your desired outcome and needs.

My husband and I are purchasing a garden flat in Lyndhurst. At the point of instructing our lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our mortgage broker emailed yesterday to say that they don't appear to be on the RBS approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a new solicitor that is on their panel or do we cover the costs for dual representation, with RBS appointing their own approved lawyer.

Where you are buying a property needing a mortgage it is standard for the buyer’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the solicitor has to meet. Some building societies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your lawyer should contact RBS to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on RBS's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Lyndhurst solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another conveyancer into the mix.
